The location is ideal for walking around Florence! Just please do not try to drive there! (the hotel is located in a large central area that is a pedestrian way and thus driving, parking, etc is quite difficult; definitely try to drop off your rental car before coming to the hotel but if you are not able then the staff is very willing to help you park for the night and give you directions to return the car)
All of the staff were amazingly helpful and knowledgeable! They quickly learn who you are and are able to provide excellent recommendations. The included breakfast has a great variety of foods and is the perfect start to each day - cappuccino with a smile!
We didn't mind the stairs as we figured it was a good workout after all our eating and drinking! And of course there is the elevator if needed.
Definitely a place we will stay again upon returning to Florence!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our family run hotel is right in the heart of Florence old town - near to the Uffizi Gallery and Ponte Vecchio. Without doubt, Hotel Alessandra is one of the most centrally located hotels in Florence. In this privileged position, Hotel Alessandra offers a home away from home, with our friendly team and extensive knowledge of the local area. The hotel entrance is situated on the second floor of the building. You can reach the reception floor using the lift, small but working fine (in the 1400s buildings hadn't been designed with this in mind!) But please note that there are around 30 steps from the entrance on the street level to the departure of the lift. We very much look forward to seeing you! Andrea and Anna ... more less
